It looks like the Volvo’s baby SUV – XC40 is indeed a big success. The Karnataka dealer Martial Motors has delivered 12 units of XC40 in 1 day. The Bengaluru dealership has among the highest bookings in the country.
No surprises there, as the car was swarmed by the potential customers when it was previewed in the city last month. So much so that i couldn’t get any more photos of the car.

“The response to the XC40 has been very encouraging. The XC40 is ideal for the Urban landscape like Bengaluru and has a host of features which are very relevant for the city. I am sure the demand for XC40 in Karnataka will increase even more as these cars are seen on roads.” said Charles Frump – Managing Director, Volvo Car India. “I would like to thank our customers here as Bengaluru is an important market for us and the success is a sign that we made a good choice to have the Volvo Cars assembly unit here.”
Ritesh Reddy – Dealer Principal, Martial Motors, said – “Our association with Volvo Cars goes back to 2013 and it is a wonderful feeling to be growing positively with the brand. At Martial Motors, we strive to provide class-leading customer experience and our new state-of-the-art service facility is the largest in the country for Volvo Cars. We are confident to contribute to the growth of Volvo Cars in India.”
The XC40 was launched in India on July 4, just over a week ago, in the single R-Design trim. More variants are expected soon.
Volvo Cars have recorded a 33% growth in Jan-June 2018 versus last year. The robust sales performance of 1242 units is spearheaded by the XC60 which contributed 25% of the total volume, the company said.
